The facelifted 2021 E-Class saloon and wagon broke cover in March and now Mercedes-Benz is teasing a shadowy image of the more stylish Coupe and Convertible body styles and we can’t wait to see them.
Both will be unveiled on May 27 and prototypes have been spied for being tested for some time now however Mercedes has now confirmed the covers will come off the newbies in an online event a week from now.
Mercedes says the E-Class Convertible “combines everyday practicality, exemplary safety and superior travel comfort with a sporty, elegant design” and to help give it a sleeker look, the German carmaker has made the front end “more dynamic.” It has also added a diamond grille as standard, “flatter” LED headlights while the redesigned taillights will be similar to the design of the CLA.
In terms of performance, the Cabriolet will be “more powerful and efficient than ever before” thanks to a new electrified engine with EQ boost technology.
We expect the exterior updates to be subtle but Mercedes says both will benefit from a “thoroughly upgraded interior” featuring a new MBUX infotainment system which, along with the digital instrument cluster, will be displayed on 10.25in screen as standard. There’ll be an option to upgrade to larger 12.3in screens.
They will also get the latest advanced driver assistance and safety technology, and a new hi-tech steering wheel with capacitive Touch Control.
